Andrew Chamberlain, the editor of the back pages, said, “As a music fan, London is an amazing place. However, the sheer number of gigs and club nights that are on every week makes it difficult to keep on top of what’s going on. The back pages should help people to avoid missing out on the great music that is played week in, week out in the city.”
In order to keep the magazine to a manageable length, jazz and classical music are not covered comprehensively. In these categories, only gigs that cross over into other genres beyond jazz and classical are likely to be listed. Tribute acts, X Factor contestants and community choirs are also unlikely to be covered.
